Golf Links Rd, Rowland Flat, Barossa Valley, South Australia 5352
Tanunda Pines Golf Club is located adjacent to the Novotel Barossa Valley Resort in the heart of the Barossa Valley, just one hours drive from Adelaide.
Adelaide is blessed with several fine golf courses with Royal Adelaide, Kooyonga, The Grange and Glenelg at the top of the order. However, there are others to consider as well, especially if one decides to visit the fabulous Barossa Valley wine region where Tanunda Pines weaves its fairways among 100-year-old gnarly gums alive with what seems to be every variety of native parrot in the nation. The course itself has surprisingly sandy loam as a base. This makes for excellent, tightly packed fairways and fast greens. The great Scottish architect Alister Mackenzie visited Adelaide in the early 1920s and wrote: "The ideal hole is surely one that affords the greatest pleasure to the greatest number, gives the fullest advantage for accurate play, stimulates players to improve their games and never becomes monotonous. Multiply that by 18 and you have an ideal golf course." Well, Tanunda Pines fits nicely into that description. Tee shots demand technique as much as power, approach shots that employ the old grey matter, tight fairways and fast greens- it's got the lot.
